Our Apostolate

As Franciscan Sisters of Christ the Divine Teacher we share joyously in the task Jesus gave to his disciples to teach and make disciples of all nations.  In our love for one another and for our students, we bear testimony by our lives as well as our teaching to the one Teacher, who is Christ.  We center our apostolate in the local Church through teaching in the diocesan high school, in our local parish faith formation and RCIA programs, and in education in all its aspects.  Not all the Sisters are teachers as such, but each bears witness and helps to build the Christian community according to her gifts.  Other parish apostolates include prayer shawl ministry, monthly book club, parish sacristans, and various parish workshops on Scripture and Church history and teachings.

 "Therefore, take these words of mine into your heart and soul. Bind them at your wrist as a sign, and let them be a pendant on your forehead. Teach them to your children, speaking of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest.” Deut 11:18-19
